    Description

    1980 Tim Raines Game Worn Montreal Expos Jersey - Spring Training. The Montreal Expos were a snakebitten organization. In 1994 the team was primed to make a World Series run and secure a new stadium in the process. Well, the player strike wiped out all of this and soured any goodwill established. When baseball finally resumed, the Expos drew sparse crowds and the team never recaptured their glory. In the early 1980's, Montreal fielded some of baseball's best teams. The man who started it all was Tim Raines. Resembling a man chiseled out of rock, "Rock" Raines was a base stealing dynamo who finished with a .303 lifetime average and 2,605 hits.

    Raines donned this "Rawlings size 40" jersey at the onset of his career. The 20-year old youngster appeared in 15 games in '80 but proved he would be ready for primetime action a year later. The knit garment shows light wear, mainly to the anchor stitching. This could have only been worn in Spring Training in 1980 as the team wore jerseys with blue/red ribbed material on the shoulders and down the sides during the regular season. Raines wore "32" for the six games he played in '79. "30 expos" is emblazoned on front along with a team emblem while the reverse showcases "Raines 30" in single-color blue. Red/white/blue braided material decorates the sleeve ends. The interior has a Rawlings size tag and partially disengaged "Set 1 1980" flag tag. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
